Having served in the 53rd WEG, I saw their efforts first hand. When the F-4s were still flying as drones, many of their efforts were integrating modern electronics successfully onto the F-4. Different power and control systems had to be overcome with custom conversion boxes/wiring. They loved the challenge and the work. I toured the Air Force museum with one Capt/Engineer who proudly and confidently stated that an F-4 on display had a weapon/pylon configuration/loadout was "technically impossible, wouldn't work, and was never used..."
